Build your own website for £90 a year
There are so many places where you can now build your own websites – drag and drop and so forth. If this is an avenue you want to go down and you have the time to do this, we’d highly recommend working with WordPress. We’ve been using WordPress to build the majority of our websites on for over 4 years, and almost 30% of all websites on the web are created on this open source technology.
We use WordPress for a few key reasons:
- It’s open source, meaning many of the plugins you can use are free. Plugins are for adding functionality to your website – such as a contact form, gallery, booking function and more.
- Not only are many plugins free, but they are also updated for free. As is WordPress itself – so your website can be updated and plugins updated by you, for free, ensuring your site is always up to date software wise and is secure.
- It’s future proof. With so many websites using WordPress, and so many developers offering free, open source plugins – it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
- It’s amazing what you can do with it – a little bit of savvy coding and you can have a very funky website.
- There are HUNDREDS of free website templates out there. We don’t use these for our clients because we design bespoke templates, but you can!
How can we help?
For £90 a year we can:
- Provide you with a hosting package for your website
